mocha and After Effects Puppet Tool

August 24, 2015

Jason Hearne from the Game Show Network shows a technique that combines the
power of mocha’s planar tracker with the mesh warping capabilities of After
Effect’s puppet tool.

This advanced technique adds a stationary texture to a moving person and
captures secondary soft tissue motion with a set of multi-planar tracks. Jason
and the GSN team improved upon a technique from a previous mocha tutorial to
create a complex transition from bare chest to painted skin in a short amount
of time.

This technique can be seen on the promo for Skin Wars, a popular GSN
program.
